Changed priorities. Cycleway gets priority over side road along Witchford Road in Ely http://t.co/wBk47Wrf62

Unsegregated shared use, except where it isn't.

.@CambsCC have finished Norfolk Road neck down, it's not perfect but a definite improvement. (Sorry terrible pic). http://t.co/3SDCMa4bbb

NCN11 from Ely towards Wicken Fen. A bit narrow for two cycles to pass - photos from construction in 2005 makes me suspect this is a failure to cut vegetation back.

Aldreth bridge on way home

The bridge over river between Aldreth and Willingham

Spotted the car shaped rack in an Ely motor vehicle storage area on Friday night! It was the other side of a fence so we locked our bikes to the railing to go into the High Flyer pub there.

Double deck racks outside Ely station.

Underneath the bird poo there are some rather nice city bikes waiting to be used. I've signed up to the http://www.bikeandgo.co.uk/ scheme but not yet had a chance to take them out. We couldn't use these because they needed to be returne ... [more]

My favourite campaigning style photo from Le #ReachRide 2014 at Wilderness Junction. 140505_103008_Reach_Ride Location: , Reach (England, United Kingdom) OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This expanse of tarmac remains largely unused during Reach Fair. A few bikes parked against buildings.

See also #53575 Bike & Go bikes in place on Ely station. They look like the Minerva hire bikes you see a lot in Cambridge but are actually made by Raleigh.

Poster board explaining the historical significance of this area as a port at the head of navigation.

Some kind of depot that has a hardstanding area which could be used for cycle parking in the event of wet weather on the day of the #ReachRide

Designated cycle parking area for Le Reach Ride 2014. #ReachRide If its wet on the day there's some hard standing area just a little further up the road.

This cycle route sign is curiously placed about 10 metres away from the actual cycle route which runs to the left and right behind me and directly behind. This track is not designated for cycling.

NCN 11 cycle route. On the right there's a solitary cycle parking stand and on the extreme left there's part of a horse mounting block just visible.

Heavy agricultural vehicles - best to keep well out of their way as they could squash you and the driver wouldn't feel a thing.

Lodes Way sign guides you across the busy road ahead via a toucan crossing.

National Cycle Route 11 following the River Great Ouse towards the Ely boatyard and the Cutter Inn. From a CTC Cambridge ride. NCR 11 is narrow here and busy with pedestrians. It would be nice to have a bit more width.

Cycle parking area at Reach Fair 2013. It was not big really enough to cope with the numbers of bikes - so we had to open up the far field.
